Immerse yourself in a hidden world of whales and weather, pirates and paychecks, pollution and taxes. Listen to a private lingo of Seaspeak and jargon; but for the sailors and laborers who carry your food, your clothing, your fuel, and your toys, they aren't beautiful words, they are ?just work.? Turn assumptions into understanding, and learn about the real world of shipping.

This is a story of nature and neighbors; of wildness and business; of revitalization and sustainability. O'Brien loves the land and its layers of life, and he "finds the nuances that make it beautiful," and seeks to "make the land whole again." This is a grounded, poetic look at life on the native grasslands of the Great Plains. Read it, wherever you are, whichever land you love.

This is a new and gripping look at the history and landscape of Britain and the legends of King Arthur. A linguist and an archeologist search for the truth behind the myth, as they climb foggy hills and carve new meanings from a mysterious poem. We follow them in the throes of love and dread, through long-lost battles and modern feuds, as they look with fascination at the secrets and natural beauty of an ancient land still living. The book will please a scholar or a poet, and it will intrigue historians and lovers of romance. This is a tale of wishes and discoveries, of the dreams that built our memories.
